Rules & Regulations


Focus Groups at the Annual Conference

Do you have an opinion about HRPA’s role as a professional regulator and would like to share it?

Claude Balthazard, VP Regulatory Affairs and Registrar at HRPA will be conducting focus groups at the HRPA 2017 Annual Conference to explore a number of issues related to HRPA’s role as a professional regulator. The sessions will be one hour in length and will be highly interactive, but they are limited to 10 participants per session. If there is something you wanted to tell HRPA about its role as a professional regulator and hear the opinions of other members on the topic, here is your chance. In the end a report will be written on the findings of the focus group (with no attribution to any participant, of course).

There will be five focus groups:

  • Wednesday, February 1, 2017, from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon
  • Thursday, February 2, 2017, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am
  • Thursday, February 2, 2017, from 10:30 am to 11:30 am
  • Friday, February 3, 2017, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am
  • Friday, February 3, 2017, from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon

The focus groups will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

Attendees can register by clicking on the link provided in the upcoming focus group email.
